9.  Anon.  1890.  Biographical and Historical Memoirs of Southern Arkansas.  Goodspeed Publ. Co., Chicago (online at Ancestry.com):
p. 339 William S. Stroope, farmer, Murfreesboro, Ark.  Mr. Stroope is recognized as a careful, energetic agriculturist of this community, and by his advanced ideas and progressive habits has done not a little for the farming elements hereabouts.  He is a native of this State, born in Clark County, in 1820, and is the fourth in a family of nine children born to Jacob and Mary (Kidwell) Stroope, natives of Kentucky and South Carolina, respectively.  The father was a mechanic and moved from his native State to Louisiana, and afterward settled in Arkansas, seven miles west of Arkadelphia, in Clark County.  He then resided in different localities after the death of his wife, which occurred in December, 1849, at the age of fifty-three years, and then went to Texas, where his death occurred in 1853, at the age of seventy-one years.  During his residence in Clark County he became well known and universally respected.  Both parents were members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, in which they were active workers. He was with Gen Jackson in the War of 1818, and was discharged at New Orleans.  The paternal grand-father died in Clark County, at the age of eighty-four years; he was an agricultureist, and owned a good farm in Clark County.  William S. Stroope was early taught the duties of farm life, but had very poor educational advantages, and later in life attended school with his own children.  He was married January 20, 1841, to Miss Arritta Pippin, a native of Tennessee, who bore him the following children:  Frances (wife of J. J. Banks, resides on the old homestead in Clark county), Jacob (died at Lauderdale Springs, Miss., in 1863, while a soldier), John P. (married and resides in Pike County), Rebecca (wife of O. S. Johnson, who lives near Murfreesboro), William T. (married and resides in Clark County), Tinnie M. (wife of John Carroll, resides in Clark County), Nancy (died at the age of thirteen years).  After his marriage Mr. Stroope purchased a good farm four and a half miles southwest of Arkadelphia, consisting of 220 acres, and at one time owned 1,120 acres, but divided all but 220 acres among his children.  He has cleared 130 acres, and has about that many
p. 340 acres under cultivation.  In 1878 he came to Pike County, located in the northern part, and there purchased a farm of 240 acres, on which he resided for five years, opening fifty acres, and making other improvements.  He removed ot Murfreesboro in 1883, and at that time bought seventy-five acres, but is now the owner of about 1,000 acres in the bottoom of the Little Missouri.  He is also the owner of a good part of the land in the limits of the town, and has 200 acres under cultivation, the principal part of which he has done himself.  In 1884 he engaged in business in Murfreesboro, and in 1886 took Mr. C.E. Stelle as a partner, the partnership being dissolved in 1890.  He has also a half interest in the gin and mill in town, and is a live business man.  On July 15, 1861, Mr. Stroope enlisted in Weatherspoon's company, and was in the battles of Oak Hill and Elkhorn.  He was taken sick after the latter battle and was unable to go with his company across the Mississippi River.  After recovering he joined Reed's company and served wholly in Arkansas, until the close of the war.
